P.S. I can show you pics of the sewing pattern if interested. First I tried an adhesive based velcro, but the heat would melt the adhesive, so sewing is the way to go.
I bought mine used and it didn't have any mounts. I took the mini bungees of a beaded seat cover and just hooked them together under the seat. It moves a little over time, but a quick tug and it's back in place.

I find you have to ensure proper adjustment of your gentleman's parts or it can get uncomfortable :eek:

Ixtapa

I got to see the "other" side of Mexico today. Beautiful, modern, clean Ixtapa with its wall of resort hotels lining the beach, a very nice marina and some good restaurants... like most marinas: expensive boats, expensive food and expensive women... slender, well dressed people with nice watches and good tans. Fisher's is a very good restaurant with a great Pulpo en Flor a las Brasas... some of the best prepared sea food I have had in Mexico.

The occasion for my going to Ixtapa was that an acupuncturist over there was recommended to me. Dr. Atala is actually licensed as a veterinarian but he treats people too. One office door is for pets, the other is for peeps. He is very, very good. My knee feels much better, the only side effect is that every time I go by a tree or lamp post I have an irresistible urge to lift my leg!

So disappointed to read the punch line here because .5 seconds into your post that was the line I was about to type.

Under 50

Gun Smoke is 36, and pardon the expression Smoke, a Yankee Doodle dandy born on the Fourth of July.

I bought a Rolex Submariner when I was in my thirties, always wanted one of the damn things.... sturdy, was great for sailing but didn't keep time worth a damn. It wasn't until I was in my fifties that I realized that for the price of an overhaul I could buy three Casio's that keep perfect time, never need servicing, never need new batteries because they are solar powered and when in the lower forty eight automatically correct themselves to the atomic clock. My kid has never owned a watch... uses her cellphone if she wants to know what time it is.

I love finely crafted machines: watches, cameras, airplanes, cars, motorcycles, sailboats, AA Fuel Dragsters, Formula 1 and Indy cars, well made firearms (I got to hold a Holland and Holland over and under big game rifle once at the real Abercrombie and Fitch in NYC, what a beautiful purpose built fire arm. I was once the armorer on a small film set in WWI. I got to operate and maintain a vintage water cooled machine gun, an amazing machine. Had to get an ATF automatic weapons permit, was not a big deal in the seventies. The 20 mm electric cannon that was mounted x 4 on a C-130 "Shadow" ship was a machine to behold. Vietnam was not safe for anything on the ground when "Puff the Magic Dragon" was overhead. A 20 mm round in every square foot of an area the size of a football field every second) But I digress.

Mexico is still safe, particularly for all of those nice people in the wall of hotels at Ixtapa. Mexico does have something for just about everyone.

Who's Barb, and does she know what you're doing with her buttpad?

Barb's buttpad is a well known comfy spot to put your man parts. Oh, yeah. She makes sheepskin seat covers, too.
